Sugar cravings…

I’m sharing today my favourite tips to soothe those pesky sugar cravings .

So here are my tips:

  • Have a snack about 3pm if you eat as you cook dinner
  • Have a snack about 5pm if you crave sugar after dinner

Make this drink:  

Lemon water + pinch of Celtic Sea Salt, a drizzle of honey (if needed) and hot water.
Have this drink when cravings hit.  But no more than 2 per day.
The water will hydrate, sea salt adds minerals, supports hydration, boosts the adrenals and lemon cleanses the liver.

1 tblespoon Apple Cider Vinegar with a drizzle of honey with boiling water
Substitute lime for lemon.

I have these drinks when I am craving that hot cuppa in the afternoon.

Soothe your sugar cravings try adding or subtracting:

  • Green powder to your water to balance + cleanse
  • Green juices, soups + smoothies.
  • Teas to cleanse the liver + boost minerals are dandelion, holy basil, fennel, cardamom + liquorice tea.  All will also balance your cravings.
  • Stabilize your blood sugar with a date filled with nut butter + sprinkled with sea salt  at snack time.
  • Don’t skip meals + drink coffee to suppress your hunger
  • Balance the sweet cravings with salty, sour or bitter.
  • Try 1tble spoon of cultured vegies or fermented drink to cleanse gut
  • Drink fresh coconut water
  • 1/4 cup of cranberry juice during cravings will balance things out
  • Add Swedish or citrus bitters to your water

Home made chai for digestion, weight loss  + blood sugar balancer:

1 cup water + 1 cup coconut milk
1 tsp. ground cinnamon, ½ tsp. ground cardamom, ¼ tsp. ground ginger
1⁄8 tsp. ground cloves + Optional: Honey to taste
Blend up in your blender, simmer in a saucepan on low heat + serve

When your soothing your cravings notice your emotions….what are you really craving? And then give it to yourself.

Sugar is a drug ….be kind as you wean yourself off this toxicity.  You will look and feel so much clearer within 24-48hrs.
